How To Disable Comments On A Specific Post or Page

Have you ever wanted to disable or turn off comments on a single, specific page or post on your WordPress site? Guess what? You can! All you need to do is log into your WordPress admin area and edit the page or post you want to disable the comments on. Look towards the top right of the screen, you should see a tab labeled “Screen Options”.

Simply click on the “Screen Options” tab

Make sure you have checked “Discussion”

Discussion Checkbox

Next scroll down your page/post, still in the editor and you should see a new section called “Discussion”.  Here you can unchecked “Allow Comments” and also uncheck “Allow trackbacks and pingbacks on this page/post”.

Discussion uncheck

That’s all there is to it!

Editorial Note: Yes, my site is up-to-date. Those screen shots were old.
